So as of recently I've been killing a starter motor almost every month.

It's a 1.4hdi, so it's not an easy job to keep doing.

I've had a new battery about 9months ago, so I'm assuming it's not that??

I'm really stuck what could be causing them the keep dying???

They just seem to turn over slower and slower every day.

Any input would be fantastic.

Many thanks,
Ben.

And no engine problems? Have you had anyone look into the engine, check the crankshaft bearings?
Other than that, a dead battery or electrical problems are usually things that make starters die, but since you said you replaced the battery....

I'll get the battery checked, it could be a dud.

No issues at all with the engine, runs very well considering it's just ticked over 162,000 miles.

I replaced the crank pulley about 2 years ago, no shaking or vibrations any more.

Starter could be on it's way out. Drawing excess amps from the battery and slowly killing it. Have you had the starter circuit checked out? I have heard of alternaters doing a similar thing but they usually work or don't. My guess would be alternator and battery as a result.

Check all the cars earths to ensure good contacts to body. Not just visual but remove the bolts and inspect clean and replace.
